PacketFabric Leverages Juniper Technology
January 23, 2017
a NantWorks company and a provider of next-generation Ethernet-based
cloud networking services, has selected Juniper Networks as its
principal packet-switched network infrastructure provider.
PacketFabric's fully automated software-defined networking (SDN)-based
network allows users to instantaneously provision terabit-scale
connectivity in a direct, private and secure manner across a
next-generation transport fabric, powered by Juniper Networks QFX10000
line of switches.
Richard Steenbergen, chief technology officer, PacketFabric said, "As we thought about how to implement our vision for a better way for companies to build and maintain their network infrastructure, we realized that the only way to achieve our goals was to create a purpose-built, greenfield network, designed specifically around automation and scale. Utilizing Juniper's QFX10000 line of switches for our infrastructure was instrumental to achieving those goals, combining Juniper's unmatched carrier-class reliability, industry-leading automation capabilities, and the latest in cloud-scale performance."
Paul Obsitnik, vice president of portfolio marketing, Juniper Networks added, "PacketFabric is delivering a platform that can revolutionize how networks interconnect and interact with each other, which is an initial step towards making Digital Cohesion a reality -- an era in which multiple applications self-assemble to deliver new, predictive services. At Juniper, we are thrilled to be providing the advanced switching technology that will support the PacketFabric platform and provide its users with the superior performance, scalability and flexibility needed to have real-time and on-demand services. We look forward to continuing to work with PacketFabric to deliver networking innovation that helps their customers benefit from the cloud."
